I decided to combine two of my favorite photos. The first one being, a black and white of bottles in an old wooden crate and another favorite of a mine, an adorable duckling. Together with these two photos and layers, cropping, cut & paste, contrast and a lot on imagination I came up with this photo. I hope you enjoy.My imagination was thinking about three adorable ducklings going on an adventure and they getting into mischief.

  • WOW, I just saw your work!!! Talk about Superb, I love your work. I only could wish I was half as good. Thank you for your compliment. Goodness, a compliment that good from someone as talented as you…all I can say is that I am honored. This is the first time I tried to do this kind of art, so I am just winging it. I just got PS Element for Christmas, so far I am self learning, but thought about taking a class. Do you have any suggestions on the best way to learn more about this tech/art. Thank you again. :)
